WAR STARTS HERE
Shutting down the DSEI arms fair
4-11 Sept 2017 ​
#StopDSEI #WarStartsHere
HOSTED BY CAMPAIGN AGAINST ARMS TRADE
This coming September, the international weapons industry plans to set-up shop in London at a huge arms fair: DSEI. The weapons sold here fuel the death, destruction and injustice perpetrated by militaries, police forces, and at borders around the world. Because war, repression and injustice start here, let’s stop them here.

A huge week of action is planned to stop the set-up of London’s DSEI arms fair between 4-11 September 2017.
Come to this workshop to hear more about the resistance to the DSEI arms fair and learn how to turn creative action ideas into reality. Together, we can create an inspiring and effective week of action to shut down DSEI.

DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International) is one of the world’s largest arms fairs. It takes place in the ExCeL centre in the Docklands area of London every two years and receives major financial, logistical and political support from the UK government.

Why stop it?
• The weapons sold here fuel the death, destruction and injustice perpetrated by armed forces and militias around the world.
• These companies are profiting from the death, maiming and displacement of millions of innocent people.
• Most casualties in today’s conflicts are civilians – many of them children.
• Arms fairs encourage governments to spend public money on militarism rather than health and education.

A huge week of action is planned to stop the set-up of London’s DSEI arms fair between 4-11 September 2017.

The workshop will show you how to turn creative action ideas into reality, and meet others keen to take action locally and travel to London to join the national demonstrations. Together, we can create an inspiring and effective week of action to shut down DSEI. It’s free to attend and you can just turn up on the day
